We had the Swiss fondue and the local Beemster and loved it. The local beer was excellent too. It took quite a while for the food to come out, and the bill was quite large, but that is pretty typical of the fondue places we've visited in other cities.

I visited the Fransman five years ago and it left an impression on me, I just went back on my most recent trip and I was not disappointed. With happy and friendly staff, great food, it is just a lovely little restaurant. I will definitely be visiting again.
